I closed a session with about 70 tabs, and upon reopening, firefox opened two windows, and the "restore previous session" was grayed out. I looked at "recently closed tabs" and there was only about 5 recent google searches in there, and none of my older tabs.

I closed the windows and tried again, this time "restore" was available but it opened only one tab to a website I hadn't had open in a session for weeks.

So I tried the fix listed here: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1245632

Renamed the folder. And now on opening, all of my history, my bookmarks, my bookmark toolbar, is completely gone, and the only toolbar bookmark I have is "Getting Started" like a brand new version of firefox.

Please help, I have so many important websites in my bookmarks and I'm ruined if I can't restore them.

# Ubuntu garbage data increases exponentially
## Intro and context

Hello. I am a power user that works in software and web development. I have been using Firefox on and on for most my life, but full time as my main browser since late 2018. One thing I love Firefox for is its lightness on memory compared to that of Google Chrome, and also its open web standards, open source, privacy, ethical owners, and customizations. I have been using Windows 10 up until July 9th 2020 before I switched to my first main Linux desktop. I have always kept my eye on CPU and RAM usage, as high CPU drains battery and running out of RAM results in a system crash. I actively keep many tabs open (less than 100 but more than 60) I ensure that they are light. I mostly have GitHub tabs open, but I keep a few other things open as well, mostly Wikipedia/wiktionary and duckduckgo tabs, a pcloud (file service) tab, but sometimes a youtube tab or two (rarely a reddit tab)

## Issue

I have been noting that garbage collection is getting exponentially worse over time. When I got my laptop, I was able to keep 2-3 fully packed profiles open at all times, and never having to close Firefox until shutdown (after about 12-16 hours uptime) I rely heavily on Firefox profiles for organization. It has been getting exponentially worse. Starting in late 2020, I had to reduce the max number of open profiles to 2, and in 2021. In early January, I had to start closing the profiles once a day to free up 2-3+ GiB of RAM (swap doesn't change much, that is the garbage data that isn't being cleared, it normally ends up at 800 MiB to 1.7 GiB by the end of the day) and now (as of January 22nd 2021) I have to close Firefox 2-3 times a day to prevent my system from getting overloaded, as Firefox eats through 1-2 gigabytes of RAM per hour, even when idle. I have noticed several processes titled `web content` that use 200-600 MiB each (there is usually 2-7 of them) I am wondering what I can do for Firefox to prevent high RAM usage. For reference, here is my main profile in idle mode:

Mozilla is refusing to let me upload images right now, so I will link them

Here is my usual 2nd profile in idle mode:

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/MProfile2_Idle_1.22.2021.png

Here is the RAM and SWAP usage before my 2nd refresh today (uptime: 8 hours 46 minutes)

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/FF_GF_Open_1.22.2021.png

And here it is with Firefox and Nautilus closed (I forgot about nautilus before getting the first 2 pics, it uses a lot of memory depending on its usage):

I have lately suspected that GitHub may have gotten heavier, or is sending too much data via AJAX methods, but I am not entirely sure.

    1. System specs

Device: `Dell XPS 13 9XXX`

Operating system: `Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa)`

Linux Kernel version: `5.4.0-48-generic`

Processor type: `Intel Core i5 10th generation`

Processor specs: `Intel® Core™ i5-1035G1 CPU @ 1.00GHz × 8`

Processor mode: `x64`

Desktop environment: `GNOME 3.36.1`

Windowing system: `X Desktop environment 11`

Memory: `7.4 GiB (8 GB)`

SWAP file: `2.0 GiB`

Firefox version: `84.0.1` - I haven't updated in a while due to fear of memory increase and instability

Number of Firefox profiles: `61` - no new profiles created since December 26th 2020

I am wondering what I should do about this. I work with hundreds of projects, so I can't close too many tabs, as it becomes hard to access and manage. I intend to close 16 tabs in the next month, as I am freeing up some projects.

I want my firefox to save my browsing history locally. It only saves a day or so at a time. I use adblock, video speed controller, DuckduckGO privacy essentials, and Tampermonkey extensions. I've looked through all their options for anything that might be causing my history to not be saved, especially the Duck duck go one but there's no setting that shouldn't be on as far as I see. Why won't firefox save my browsing history?

Hi, I'm glad with firefox, but I'm here to inquire a small issue on tabs.

Currently, as I close the last tab of a window in firefox, it will be marked as a "recently closed" tab, which pops up on a new instance of firefox (by my setting of "reopen recently closed tabs on start"). However, I'd like it not to be opened if the "tab" itself is closed, because closing a tab (not a window) meanings I don't want to see it; and if the "window" is closed, then I may need it for the next time - I just want to put it aside for now.

My question is, can I achieve this on firefox, namely, when I close the last tab of a window and open a new window, I won't see that tab; also, when I directly close the entire window, I'll be able to see it next time. In fact, this is the default behavior of the Chromium Edge which I think we can take.

What I don't like now is that the last tab is always there - when I close the tab and the browser, and reopen it, it's still there, as if it sticks here; I have to open a new tab + close the "last" tab + close the browser to get rid of it, and that's annoying.

My current work around is to set in about:config to force open a new tab after the last tab is closed; the trouble is that it makes closing the browser a bit difficult.

Thanks in advance, for looking at this support / feature request. ( ´・・)ノ(._.`)

Is firefox deliberately making sure it is no longer compatible with web sites ? every time it is updated i can add web sites to the list of no longer compatible web sites. and they are not changing, so the issue is with firefox. I see in the about us, Firefox is braging about their collaboration with Ford Foundation, omidyar network, color of change and consumers international and ford foundation even referred to it as a match made in heaven. How ever how can screwing up every day of the week be a good thing or heaven ? How is it these ' people ' think their of any help at all ? The issue with the usps OIC portal issues was never fixed, then it was several banks and credit card company's, now it is home depot corporate log in [ not homedepot.com ] also the apple icloud issue, with some hidden page command that causes the courser to no longer work when viewing pictures. So I am wondering how a bunch of deliberate screw ups can brag about how their making it ' better' by making the web browser no longer compatible with high security web sites then trying to say the issue is with them is not good, helpful, or even a step forwards.

So now the only work around is fire fox has to be abandoned as a joke junk web browser and all of those web sites can only be accessed by google chrome.

I'm not sure if it is firefoxs new so called clown high security, how ever forcing users to go to a different web browser is not more security , it is a deliberate screw up, like making a car that breaks down when you drive it out of your driveway and calling it safer as it can not get into a accident if you can not drive it.

and just so that we are crystal clear for years I have run computers on line with NO anti virus or malware protection, yet my computer does not get infected, but how can that be ? the answer is simple, people are morons that do stupid things that cause their computers to be infected, if your IQ was higher then a bug you would not have all of the issues your all having. So what do you do ? you change the browser thinking it is going to protect you from your selfs, when the problem is not with the browser its with you the users.

So how are all of your continuous changes that cause the web browser to no longer function properly a help at all ?

I create and use many Google Drive Sheets and Documents. However it seems Firefox cannot translate the scaling in these docs for printing, especially Sheets, and it’s driving me nuts. I don’t know if it’s Firefox or Google. I cannot find the proper settings. I create a Google Sheet and everything looks normal on the screen, Ariel font Pt 10 or 12. However for me, Firefox will not paper print a Google sheet, it only prints a .pdf file, and the appearance of the pdf and final paper print is very small, too small to read or use. I believe this only started in last year to two. Is there a bug, or an add-on or extension, or setting that will correct this problem. I’m running the current version of Firefox on the current version of Windows 10. Thank you.
